Folsom Prison Blues" is a song written in 1953 and first recorded in 1955 by American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash. The song combines elements from two popular folk styles, the train song and the prison song, both of which Cash continued to use for the rest of his career. It was one of Cash's signature songs. It was the eleventh track on his debut album With His Hot and Blue Guitar and it was also included (same version) on All Aboard the Blue Train.
With each movement – a hand gesture, step of foot, swaying of hips – a story would unfold. Through the hula, the Native Hawaiians were connected with their land and their gods. Before the arrival of Western missionaries, the hula was danced for protocol and social enjoyment. The hula, specifically, was even outlawed. It wasn’t until King David Kalakaua came to the throne in 1874 that Hawaiian cultural traditions were restored. Public performances of hula flourished and by the early 1900s, the hula had evolved with modern times. Today, this unique art form, deeply rooted in culture, has become a worldwide symbol of Hawaiian culture, and one that you can experience on your trip to the islands.
Cash wrote Folsom Prison Blues while stationed in Germany with the Air Force in 1952. He said he he was inspired by a crime drama that was played for the troops on base called Inside The Walls of Folsom Prison. It was a violent movie, remembered Cash. And I just wanted to write a song that would tell what I thought it would be like in prison. The song combines elements from two popular folk genres, the train song and the prison song, both of which Cash would continue to use for the rest of his career. While the first release of the song was in 1955, the 1968 At Folsom Prison version is a rare example of a live song which is considered more definitive than its studio-recorded counterpart.

18. Duckin' and Dodgin'. Alan Lomax recorded these work songs and blues at Southern Prison Farms in the middle of the 20th Century. This is a recording of a rich cultural tradition, genuine folk music, creative, spontaneous, humorous, sometimes poignant. I remember hearing this almost 40 years ago when my elder brother brought the vinyl disc home from the University of Virginia, when campus stores sold more books and recordings than they did T-shirts.
